"On a stroll through Southbank in London, myself, my husband and my folks were feeling rather peckish so we opted for the delicious Latin American taste of Las Iguanas."
As a vegan (of course) dining as such establishments is often disconcerting as menus are usually rather selective and small for us plant-based kind.
Nevertheless as my folks had never visited the restaurant, we decided to give it a go so they could experience some true Latino culture, London style.
I was pleasantly surprised to find out that not only did they have a buy one cocktail get one free special on at the time, but they even had a full vegan and vegetarian friendly menu as well.
After downing a devilishly delicious Margarita it was down to main event, what to eat?
This was no easy feat as the vegan tapas and meals from Brazil, Argentina Peru and Mexico on offer were slightly overwhealming for someone exepecting a choice of 3 dishes.
After googling images of the vegan meals on their menu, I eventually opted for the Mushroom Fajita stack, and my-oh-my, to die for.
The mushrooms were delicious, the veg cooked to perfection and the fajita’s melted like vegan cream cheese in your mouth.
The dish was constructed with each element on its own plate, stacked on top of one another with the condiments (including vegan cheese) sat at the bottom.
The vegan and vegetarian options (some veggie options could also be made vegan) available at Las Iguanas are out of this world and I will most certainly be back to trial a few more dishes.
Coupled with buy one get one free cocktails all day, every day (I think), how can you go wrong?
